Film backlog, my first slides

So this is a roll of film I got from Marc in the summer of 2018. Since I had never shot film before, I loaded up some Provia 100 and immediately started shooting. Unfortunately I didn’t have anywhere to process my film until I returned to California the following summer.

I’ve been too busy since then to properly scan film and finish off this roll until now. Which means this is all photos that are from August 2018 and I’m a full year and a half behind in getting them up anywhere.

Most of these photos ran super blue in the scans as if I underexposed just the reds. Some of this could be emulsion response but I think It’s mostly because I chose to err on the side of underexposing everything. I don’t know how accurate the speeds on my Yashicamat are plus I’m using my iPhone as a light meter so I figured better safe than sorry.

New Year’s Walk

Our annual New Year’s walk.* This year we walked through Princeton’s West Windsor campus since it’s slated for development in the next couple of years and all these fields will be turned into athletic buildings and parking structures. It looks like they’re going to leave the small cemetery but having it surrounded by a bike circle isn’t the same effect as it being all by itself in the middle of nothing.

*Weather permitting of course.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

After going twice in 2016 it’s taken me three years to return to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The kids have gone the past couple years (including an overnight with their grandparents in 2017) but I haven’t. It’s nice to be back and just sit in the Outer Bay gallery or watch the Kelp Forest tank. The main exhibits are the same as always but they’re also my home waters and speak to me.

As comforting as it is to see the same exhibits and animal life I’ve grown up with, I can’t help but wonder how the aquarium’s focus is going to change as sea water temperatures rise and the mix of the bay changes. I love that my kids love this aquarium and I hate that they’re most-likely only going to know about all this stuff as things they saw when they were little before they vanished from the Earth.

Anyway, I got to try out a new phone camera and further figure out how I can try and keep my DSLR from blowing out the blue channel.
